Inspiration

When I first stepped into this restaurant in China, I had a flash back of my childhood memories. Xiao Long Bao, which is also called dumpling in America, is a typical Chinese food. (Yummy). I used to grasp some Xiao Long Baos on the way to school every morning from this kind of restaurants. It was warm into my heart holding them in the winter especially. They aren’t even count as restaurants, more like street markets that look kind of old. They cook in front of you and give you the warm delicious food with cheap prices.

So I thought that was an interesting idea to have a shot there and share a little childhood stories with my dear readers. I chose the outfit from STF, which one of my favorite brand from China with a lazy, funny, and chilled kind of style and they are really affordable as well. I wanted to create the feeling of “woke up like this” with a pajama kind of look, but adding some glamour elements from jewelries and makeup.

I also want to share this link here so check out clothing from STF. Everything is in Chinese but I think there are somewhere you can change to a English version.

故事
一家街边的小店,容纳前世今生的故事。
用浓艳的唇,尝遍人生百味。
酸甜苦辣咸,我要我的滋味。

灵感
当我走进这家街边的小店,童年的记忆一下子回闪在我的脑海里。记得每天清晨,上学的路上经过小笼包店的时候总是买几个包子。冬天的时候,捧着在手心里,心里都感觉到暖暖的。这样的小餐店,后来我到了美国之后就基本没有看见了。
所以我决定在这一家小店拍摄,以此和我亲爱的读者来分享我童年一点点的小回忆。我选择的服装来自两三事,是一家独立设计师品牌,有着慵懒,有趣的风格。我想要营造一种“我醒来就这样”的感觉,所以我穿了这样一套“睡衣”感觉的衣服,但却加入了一些复古美的元素:红唇和首饰。
我同时想把这家店的链接分享给你们。
